Maher: GOP is the 'Party of the Apes'
Politico ^ | June 19, 2012 | By William Bergstrom

Posted on 06/19/2012 9:34:31 PM PDT by Schatze

Bill Maher on Monday called the GOP the “Party of the Apes” and ripped Republicans for not repudiating Rep. Allen West — who, the comedian suggested, should be taken to a mental hospital.

“[T]he idea that the blame for our government’s dysfunction is equally shared by the parties just is a giant, steaming mound of horsesh*t and anyone who has paid attention to politics over the last 20 years knows it. Or as I like to call it, ‘The Rise of the Party of the Apes,’” the host of HBO’s “Real Time” wrote on his blog.

Maher singled out two politicians as extremists: West and Richard Mourdock, the Republican nominee for Senate who defeated longtime Sen. Dick Lugar in a primary last month.

“[T]ake Allen West. Seriously, take him to the padded cell and give him 20 CCs of the high test,” Maher wrote, noting West’s remark that some 80 House Democrats are Communists. “And not one Republican said, ‘Allen, come on. You’re making us look dumb.’ Not one of the Republican candidates for president said anything. Because in today’s Republican Party, that’s not even edgy anymore. They probably saw him later on and were like, ‘Word, Allen. Word.’ Because that’s how they think black people talk.”

As for the Tea Party–backed Mourdock, who said last month, “I certainly think bipartisanship ought to consist of Democrats coming to the Republican point of view,” Maher equated it with a relationship in which only one partner receives oral sex.

Just so I'm clear on this, Maher compared a Black Congressman to an Ape?

Allen’s statement was probably correct, but technically those 80 are socialists. They belong to the Democrat Socialists of America. Maybe some belong to the Communist Party USA but West was probably basing his comments on the DSA memberships.

In a (rather cynical) way, I am heartened to learn of Bill Maher’s most recent outburst. Those who have attempted to portray him as an equal-opportunity curmudgeon, just as happy to slam Democrats as he is to bash Republicans, may find this one especially hard to explain...

Interesting you put it that way. I said in an earlier post on this subject that he (and those like him) makes the Dems seem like the party of the snakes by contrast . . .

Let him rant. This is liberalism on display folks, once you strip away the forced veneer of “caring for their fellow man”. Just an OWS guy who happened to get a TV gig by calling himself a “comedian”.

Sometimes, my FRiends, the portrait of a person's character is painted in his own words.

Said Mister Maher, shortly following the 911 attacks...

We have been the cowards. Lobbing cruise missiles from two thousand miles away. That's cowardly.

[ Then,about the terrorist fungi that attacked us]

...Staying in the airplane when it hits the building. Say what you want about it. Not cowardly.

Mister Maher will never, ever live down this scurrilous vilification of his own country and our military; or his admiration and praise for the enemy.

Never.

Ever.

Hey, that’s racist!

The Repubs, if they were smart, would trot out some black Repubs to the "news" media to proclaim that they are offended by the "Apes" reference.

Planet of the Apes....

George Taylor: Take your stinking paws off me, you damned dirty ape!

George Taylor: A planet where apes evolved from men? There’s got to be an answer.

Dr. Zaius: Don’t look for it, Taylor. You may not like what you find.

I’d say in the Repub party we have conservatives, corporatists, fascists and some statists.

The dems are the home of socialists, communists, anarchists, agitators, and overall catch all America haters.

I've always thought he was more "rodentius" vs. reptilian. His tiny eyes, big nose, slicked-back hair - gave him the look of a typical cartoon rat.

I often heard that that was a rumor. Never found anything on the Internet to substantiate the rumor. Not that it is not true, just couldn’t find anything out there.

I lost respect for Ann when she started shifting her views to the left.

When she's been on some of the Fox shows, there have been sly implications that the person she was dating was Maher. But maybe that was just to stir up the pot.

Why any woman in her right mind would date a misogynist like Maher is unfathomable.

Another five years old Billy will be to hideous for TV to allow on the air.
Probably utterly senile too, so I suppose they will make him network president. ;-}

Did Maher have anything to say about Harry Reid calling the TEA party terrorists?

Demonizing the innocent and euthanizing the “undesirables” are hallmarks of the American left and the Third Reich.

Time and time again we see socialism fail. So, why would people like Bill keep advocating that system? I believe it's only lip service for the peons. It's all just to keep the little people watching their shows, buying their books and paying to see their movies. If they really believed what they say, they'd write a check to the IRS for more than they owe rather than paying accountants to lessen their taxes. They wouldn't have multiple mansions in several countries and fly private jets. The form of government they advocate only benefits those at the top. Themselves.
If, Obama is reelected, I'd like to give Bill what he and his friends have asked for. As the saying goes, “Be careful what you wish for, you may get it.” I would like to see the the Tea-party and 99% get together and push for a “Put your money where your mouth is tax”. This would only be on those who have backed Obama and/or called for the rich to pay higher taxes. I'm sure it would never pass, but just the sound of their squeal would prove their hypocrisy, and hopefully put an end to their bull$^!+.
